Survey on Literacy Standards in Iowa

Survey on Literacy Standards in Iowa

May 4, 2016

Dear Parents,

I'm writing to ask for your help in spreading the word about an online survey <> to gather public feedback on our state's current literacy standards as outlined in the Iowa Core. The survey is open through May 13.

The literacy standards outline learning expectations for English-language arts and for literacy in history, social studies, science, and other technical subjects. The Department held public forums statewide in April, but it's important to give teachers, administrators, and other education stakeholders the opportunity to comment through this survey. This effort to collect input on literacy standards is part of an ongoing review of our state standards prompted by the Governor's Executive Order 83.

Thank you for your time and willingness to assist in this important work for Iowa's schools and students.
